? >> well, they don't look for the trading environment, you know, it's better. it's certainly improved quarter over quarter. however, it remains fairly tepid. we're still cautious on trading volume, although yet when we saw some increased volatility in the market, our trading volume was north of 500,000, so a bit of volatility here in the market, with increased bullishness in the markets would be the best thing for our trading environment. we're likely to trade toward the low end this year. >> fred, i appreciate your cautiousness, right? probably good to be a little conservative. there's one number that stands out that says you may be more optimistic than you're letting on. you're advertising spend went up by $24 million year over year. you wouldn't be paying to advertise if you didn't think you could get more customers. >> well, that's absolutely true. first off, it is a bit of seasonality in that number, so this quarter and the next quarter are two biggest advertising spending quarters historically, and will continue to be this year, but we delivered very strong organic growth and go

impression that gold is no longer -- scare people, but what you should do in this environment is don't get distracted from there, don't go for fear. >> ross, if what you're saying suggests, perhaps, gold still is a safe haven, why do you think so? >> let me qualify that. it's an imperfect safe haven. it's an imperfect safe haven, particularly in the short run. >> against what? >> against financial meltdown or inflation or politicians not doing what they should do, in that case. so it's an insurance plan, if you like. >> is the reason we have this down move is because people are now -- is the gold pricing in the fact we're not going to get more qe out of -- >> it may be. and it's part of the story dwr the shorts have hit gold is not because of what has happened, but because of what hasn't happened. we haven't had hyper inflation. we didn't have the euro collapse. certain things didn't happen. i think that would have aggravated the gold market. fundamentally, it still remains in the short-term a long haven and imperfect. >> if nvs the kind of move, you know, that indicated that if gold w

compliance. how do you see the regulatory environment playing out? and how are you going to improve margins in this scenario? >> actually, my margins improved by 140 basis points over the quarter. so we had a record margin for the first quarter. so over a 40% margin. i was asked specifically, can our margins even improve more, and i said, well, we have a lot of pressures on regulatory issues. we're reinvesting in our company by hiring more people. so i was just being cautionary. but to answer your question, our margins have had improved year after year. they're going to improve from 2012 into 2013. i believe our business model will allow margins to improve, despite, despite, we're spending at more money on lawyers, spending a lot more time working with our regulators. and i think this is just the cost of doing business moving forward. >> we'll leave it there. larry, always wonderful to have you on the program. thanks so much for your time. >> thanks, maria. >> larry fink, black rock. we have a market up 112 points. we are still waiting on answers coming out of boston in terms of sus

is also dunk can heinz is a really good situation. especially in this environment. why don't we go to bruno in florida. bruno. >> caller: jimmy! big boo-yah to ya! >> hey, sunshine, what's shaking? >> caller: not much, man. marine technology. unfortunately, i got it when the company went public on the ipo in 1920. posting 95. what do you think about this? >> i was surprised the stock didn't act better, given how many ipo positive initiations there were today. i think the stock is a buy. i like that kind of programmatic advertising business for the web. i think you trade this thing up to 16, 17. i think you've got some room to run. all right. lots of ipos on the horizon. you know i'm liking this black hawk. and sea world. remember, not the chase in the after market, but slow and steady safeway is a good alternative if you can't get into black hawk. and you know what, fairway, real good produce. don't go anywhere.

pc environment, because we know what's going on there. let's go inside intel numbers right now. joining me now is intel cfo, stacy smith, in a first on cnbc interview. mr. smith, good to have you on the program. how would you characterize the quarter? >> the demand environment played out as we expected, and i think the company executed well. as i just heard jon say, we saw fis growth in our data center business. it was up 7% year on year. and within the overall market for computing, we're seeing nice growth. and there's obviously a transition going on there, but i think we're well positioned for that as well. >> and shareholders certainly want to see change in terms of utilizing the balance sheet, which you've done quite well. we're going to get to that in a moment. but you said that the demand part of the story played out the way that you expected. in other words, you are expecting pc sales to go down? >> well, what we're seeing is a transition within the overall client category. and so if you think about it, what we're seeing is very robust growth in new form factors. things

that the compliment from a weaker or softish commodity environment will drive that even further and higher. >> when i see you, the one commodity which is oil, give me your take here and correct me if i'm wrong, but you've always been a big bull. >> yeah. reality is oil. we just don't have a lot of new sources for it and you really have to take the world and slam it to almost zero growth before that would really undermine the supply/demand picture for oil. oil production grows about a million, a million and a half barrels a year and demand grows about that amount and the cost structure to bring that on is now $80 to $90 a barrel and i can't say this doomsday scenario that people say the oil markets will be prone to, and if it fits in the broader picture that the global economy is doing fine, you will see oil bottoming here in the next $5, $6 a barrel and probably making close to a new high by the end of the year. so everybody understands why that's a positive, but there are some who want to read both the decline in crude and gold as, all right, we're not going to have inflation and w

environment good for business. and i think they have all lost sight of that. it's not about taxes, redistribution. >> are you looking for a quick fix? >> there's no quick fix to this. there's a very difficult fix to this and things if both sides will have to do that are uncomfortable in the short run. lying about it isn't going to make it better. by saying social security, medicare, medicaid aren't in trouble, is not going to make it better. >> working so well. >> despicable. >> bob, thank you for coming in today. >> thank you. >> j.j., rick, see you soon. thank you. >> always a pleasure. >> our guest host will be with us the rest of the show. >> very excited this morning. >> tell us what you really think. coming up, more on goldman sack's earnings report. beating the streets expectations by 40%. up next, reaction from financial sector analysts. the one and only dick bove. ♪ ♪ the new blackberry z10 with time shift and blackberry balance. built to keep you moving. see it in action at blackberry.com/z10 ♪ [ laughter ] ♪ [ female announcer ] each one of us is our own boss.
